The outro jam during Comes a Time on 7/17/76 is one of the most gorgeous pieces of improvisation the Grateful Dead have ever performed, but I don't see how you could possibly consider any of the Orpheum shows "hidden gems"

For my tastes, Cliff, that second set, from Comes A Time > through the encore is one of my most listened to sets over the last few years. Great for rainy days. Though I confess that the copy I listen to most, I replaced, in Toasting it, Yet, Still, One More Ubiquitous Saturday Night after Goin' Down The Road with the Johnny B. Goode from the end of set one - a more enjoyable listen through that way, IMHO.

Not "hidden" but definitely overshadowed by the popular consensus on the following night. I do not share that view. I think 7/17 has more pure "it-ness" and sheer inventiveness and beauty. 7/18 is great but not as raw. 7/18 is a Tiffany Diamond, 7/17 is like scuba diving on a reef. The diamond is beautiful but the reef is awesome.
